Herkimer County College Foundation (HCCF) Assists Application

HCCF Assists is a grant program available to eligible full-time students. The grants are capped at $500 and can be applied toward necessities required to continue to pursue and complete their education at Herkimer. These can include, but are not limited to, technology for academic purposes, shelter and emergency transportation. Grants are limited to one per student, and priority will be given to students with the greatest financial need. Final decisions regarding the awarding of HCCF Assists grants cannot be made until such time that Herkimer College’s plan for distributing funds from the Cares Act is approved by SUNY.  


The HCCF ASSISTS program is a grant and does not require repayment.  There is no guarantee that all or a portion of the maximum amount will be awarded. Due to limited funding, priority is given to current students with the greatest financial need.  Grants will be available until funding is exhausted. Clicking SUBMIT signifies that to the best of your knowledge, the information supplied on this form is correct and you understand that the information provided here is subject to verification by the Herkimer County College Foundation Assists Program Committee.
